Drive-in Date

On Saturday night, Tyler & I went to the Mendon Twin Drive-In.  It's somewhat newly owned by the Andelman brothers from the Phantom Gourmet.  We didn't expect them to be there while we were there, but I knew it was them as soon as I heard the voices over the intercom!  I held down the fort at the truck while Tyler went to the snack bar.  I told him to make sure he took a picture of them if he saw them (my dad is a really big fan), and he came back with this picture.  Pretty cool!

The drive-in was playing retro movies for Labor Day weekend (as well as all of the month of September).  We saw The Goonies and were supposed to see Raiders of the Lost Ark afterwards... I fell asleep during the first movie and we knew we had a long day the next day, so we decided to head home.  Lame, I know. ;)


We piled some of the cushions from our outdoor sectional and a few blankets in the bed of Tyler's pick-up truck to watch the movie.  It was pretty comfy!  Clearly comfortable enough for me to fall asleep.  It was a little chilly out, but between my jacket and all the blankets, I was just fine! 


The set-up at the drive-ins is pretty cool.  They have a big snack bar as well as a beer garden.  Depending on which screen your movie is on, you can sit in the beer garden and watch the movie, too.  I just got some popcorn, but I've heard the food is pretty good!  They are the Phantom Gourmet brothers, after all.




We would definitely go back to the Mendon Twin Drive-in again!  Maybe we'll plan the next time when we don't have to get up so early the next day. ;)
